I've installed a clean install of wordpress 2 on my Linux/CentOs/cPanel server, running PHP5, and the Dashboard fails to load completely, when loggin-in, it looks like this:
I've commented out line 18 in /wp-admin/index.php which is:
$rss = @fetch_rss('http://feeds.technorati.com/cosmos/rss/?url='. trailingslashit(get_option('home')) .'&partner=wordpress');
And it works fine! What's the problem?
